I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

There is no wonder your gaming is laggy with a GT 610. GT 610 is not a gaming card. For gaming get yourself a 650 or better. I personally have a GTX 660. With a better graphics adapter you should be fine with the FX-6100. Make sure your power supply will support a better graphics adapter as well.

I always suspected this, but today, confirmed it.

Intel Pentium D 2.8GHz
Nvidia 7300LE 256MB
1GB DDR2

I played Fifa 08 on my friends computer. It ran smooth. He has a Pentium D 2.8GHz, Integrated graphics, 1GB ram.

I tried it on my computer, which has a nearly equivalent processor, and a graphic card (though a sucky one), and it was *crawling*. I ran it at Medium details, 800x600. I could never get past 30fps, and sometimes even 5-10.

Then I downloaded SisSoft Sandra. There I benchmarked my CPU.
Here's a screenshot:

What the HELL? This is some MAJOR problem. Less than half of what it should perform! How do I fix this problem and what can be the causes?! CPU Temp is 41 celcius idle, and <45 on load. I think those are pretty reasonable temps.

Please help.
EDIT: A few things I forgot to mention. I'm on Windows 7, with latest drivers of everything, include BIOS.

Hey guys, I have nooticed as of late that my computer "lags" after it has been left on for a while.

Basically every 3-5 second it hangs for a millisecond then is fine. It does it constantly. I have picture of my task manager, it shows these very odd spikes in the cpu. The following picture was taken at complete idle. I noticed that just before it hangs, my crss.exe proccess hops up to the second positon then back down if I sort by cpu column. I am guessing this is what is causing this pause. Things become normal after reboot though.

How can I fix this? What is the problem?

I am using XP SP2, this is 2 week old clean format install, with all windows updates. I rana virus scan and spyware scan with no results.

Performance on a Windows XP Professional system used by the accounting Department has been slowly degrading. I recently added a 100-Mbps network card, thinking that would correct the problem. To my knowledge, no other hardware has been added to the server, but I suspect someone has been adding software.

What steps should I do to determine what is causing the system to slow down? Which monitoring applications should I use and which computers they will be run?
 

A:Performance Problem or not?

First thing I would do is Alt-Ctrl-Del and look at what is running and what the resource utilizations are. Check the Performance Tab and see what's up. Look at the CPU utilization of the various Processes and Applications...see who the hog is!

I recently bought a new system. Unfortunately, the boost in gaming performance I was expecting is basically non-existent. My 6600GT is being outperformed by my friends 9600XT and completely dominated by my roommates 6800. Its barely giving me any performance over my old 9700pro.

Heres my specs...

AMD 64 3200+
MSI 6600GT 128mb SLi
1 gig of ram
350watt antec PSU

Please help me out. I cant stand the thought of blowing all the money on this computer for nothing.
 

A:6600GT performance problem

it's understandable that 6800 outperforms your 6600gt. Now the peformance of 6600gt should be much better than the 9600xt (http://www6.tomshardware.com/2005/07/05/vga_charts_vii/page4.html)

did you have the latest driver installed? what's your setting of the game? 6600gt has only 128bit memory interface so if the setting is too high, you may notice the slow performance compare to the 256bit card(such as 9700 and 6800)

A:Problem with game performance?

Oh, almost forgot.

There's another very important characteristic as well. I experience a sort of "jitter" problem when playing these games. There's no choppiness in FPS, but the game literally seems to slows down for an eighth of a second then speed up to re-compensate. It's hardly noticeable in Dota 2, but it makes it look as if my character in PS2 has a slight limp when he runs.

A:Vista Performance Problem

Hi Casper,

I really appreciate how much work you've put in to this, but I'm stumped that you don't provide more about your Vista environment.

What is the drive speed, the cpu speed and how much RAM?

Are you running a fixed page file size? How much FREE hard disk space do you have? Have you enabled compression or Bitlocker? Have you ever defragged?

If your files are spread willy nilly around a slow drive and scattered on either side of the MFT zone and the page file, you're going to creep along.

"high IO count in the first 30 seconds" = this is good, haulin *** is good, moving data is good, put the petal to the metal so to speak. I'd be worried if it was low IO. It's the other agonizing 4 1\2 minutes that needs addressing.

fltmgr.sys is taking a voracious amount of time through the whole boot process. Also you have SQL running.

http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/driver...v/default.mspx

I would turn off SQL and remove it from the equation. Clean up, defrag, stop any start up items that aren't required, turn off services that aren't required, and run this again to sort of back-peddle out of the problem.

Then re post the results.

It sounds like you have deleted the graphics driver. From your specs I'm guessing you are using integrated graphics on the motherboard. If so, go to this link and download and install the VGA driver:

Please help me if further information is needed to help I shall gather it for you!

A:Problem with Computer Performance

Hi and welcome to TSF

Your problem could be caused by malware that has not been detected by your current security software.

Try a scan here:-
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

And if you haven't already, run Spybot and Adaware-SE (also, try installing the MS Anti-Spyware program if you don't have it yet) - then follow the advice here:-
http://www.techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=15968

If the problem persists, run a Hi-Jack-This scan and post up the log on the HJT board.

If you get the 'all clear' and things are still not right, go to Start>Run and type msconfig and try the 'diagnostic start' up option ... if that clears the problem you will need to stop some of your background programs and then reintroduce them one by one to see which one is causing the issue.

I have an Abit Ai7 and an intel pentium 4 2.8ghz processor,512 mb ram, and an nvidia geforce fx 5900 xt and an integrated sound card.

Now my problem is that whenever I play games such as Warcraft or any other intensive processing task, I open up task manager and it states that it is only running at 50% of the cpu speed.I can open up 2 programs that run at 50% but never one program with 100%. I'm sure also that it is slow because my warcraft games usually lag(LAN) when my friends with a 2.4 ghz processor does not.

I have heard somewhere that this might have to do with the integrated sound card, can anyone please help me?
 

A:Strange CPU problem.Its at 50% performance

Nut,

What are you hoping for when you look at your utilization numbers??

Do you want to see 100%? Why?

You said:
"I open up task manager and it states that it is only running at 50% of the cpu speed.I can open up 2 programs that run at 50% but never one program with 100%."

You are misinterpreting what these numbers mean. Not every program has the CAPABILITY of pushing your PC to 100%. The % numbers are how much resource is being used, not a throttle setting on the Processor speed.

When your game is "lagging" are you running other programs at the same time?

What is the CPU utilization at those times?

Do you know what your Frame Rates are for Warcraft?

Is your friend's non-laggy PC the same config as yours EXCEPT for the Processor?

Hi, im trying to fix a laptop as the Battery seems to have had issues since it updated to Windows 10.

Going from being fine, it now loses 3/4% per minute, then completely shuts down at 80%. You plug it back in and its on 0%, charges gradually to 20% then magically claims its at 100% not long afterwards.

Ive done a systems diagnostics report which has failed continually on "System service checks". Ive done Sfc /scannow which reported no issues.

Has the Battery simply given up? Seems very odd timing & the laptop in general is much slower than before having used it previously.

Thanks for any help

A:Performance problem Windows 7

Just a quick update; I've noticed that CPU usage increases quite a bit after the slowdown occurs. Firefox, for example, appears to consume ~17% CPU time, so one core when it's pretty much idle. After a reboot, Firefox consumes 0-1% CPU time with the same tabs open (although not all are active).

Similarly, flash player plugins, office applications etc. consume much more CPU time than after a reboot.

Baps.

Asus A8s-x mb
amd x2 4200
2gb pc3200
160gb sata
ati hd2600xt
creative audigy
Vista Ultimate 64

When Vista is installed it runs fine. Its not until we add the ATI vista 64 drivers does the machine slow down to a crawl. Originally this was with an x1600xt so we upgraded to the hd2600xt. Same issue. Now comes the weird part. So we got our hands on a single core amd 64 3200+ cpu and put it in. Now the machine runs fine. Why would using a dual core processor slow the machine down significantly. He has set up a dual boot with xp 64 and it runs fine with the x2 processor. So the cpu isnt bad. Any ideas would be great, since we are out of them at the moment. Thanks

A:Bizarre performance-eating problem

Odd piece of additional data - I am usually connected to a 26" Samsung monitor. I have discovered that most of the problems occur when this monitor is connected AND when the troublesome app is located on that monitor. For example, today I launched WMP11 and watched a video clip for a few minutes on the laptop's screen without incident. But when I moved it to the Samsung monitor, CPU utilization went to 100% and stayed there. Moving the window back wasn't an option, as I couldn't get control for long enough to do anything.Note that the problem does still occasionally happen when this monitor is not connected....dan

First, here is a list of my relevant hardware:
AMD X2 4200+ @2.7 GHz
3 GB DDR RAM
System drive: 2 x 250 GB (raid 0, about 90 MB/sec reading)
graphics: 9800gt
2 USB Flash drives dedicated to Ready Boost (2 GB and 512 MB)

Now let me describe my problem: I have to run 10 virtual machines on this PC. I use VMWare Server, each virtual machine is set to 128 MB RAM (lowest value possible, any lower values result in excessive swapping). All virtual machines are set up on another harddrive (200 GB, about 40 MB/sec reading), so they don't affect my system drive.
Performance is normally just fine in Win 7 (the virtual machines eat up very little CPU power). But when i use very demanding applications, e.g. Crysis, performance becomes a nightmare (framedrops, game is not playable). The LEDs for my flashdrives and my harddrive are flashing all the time. I guess all my Ram is used and win 7 swaps the data needed for crysis instead of swapping my virtual machines. Only way to play crysis is to stop my virtual machines (which is not acceptable).
In Win XP that wasn't such a big problem, there was some swapping for about 1 minute when i started crysis, then performance was just fine.

Any hints?

A:Ridiculous performance problem Windows 7 Pro RTM x64

Try this I think it has something to do with your video drivers honestly. Ive had this before try uninstalling all drivers you have installed for your video card.

Reboot into safe mode and look at your CPU utilization. What is it? If its a drive conflict either video or otherwise it should not show up in safemode and your speed should be faster.

If its all good reboot into regular windows. Download the newest DRIVER only for your video card from the manufacture and install it manually.

Reboot and see if it fixes it. If it does and you want to install the ATI catalyst software go ahead now and install it. It should work. Let me know what happens.

Secondly I would recommend that you download all the newest WIn7 or Vista 64 drivers for your hardware and install them over the default windows installations for chipset etc..

A:Problem: Terrible 3D performance from 8800GTX

Update

I just came up with the 'radical' (slight sarcasm) idea of putting the graphics card in the second physical x16 PCIe slot. The 3DMark score after installing the drivers jumped up to ~8000. Checking the bus speed it showed it was running at x4 as this is all the motherboard supports in the secondary slot.

When in the primary slot it shows up as x16 in CPU-Z and the NVidia control panel but obviously does not perform as such. I've checked the BIOS to check it's not forcing the slot down to x1 etc. Do you think this means there is a physical problem with the board and it needs to be RMAd?

Thanks

A:Performance Monitoring Report Problem

I don't believe that perfmon is meant to collect bandwidth usage on the network adapters. Not sure what data, exactly, it would collect, but possibly only instances of failure. (I'm just guessing about all of this never having tried it, so take that into consideration.) Also, I don't see how perfmon could even access bandwidth usage without tapping into the connection somehow, such as by using a pcap driver.

You may have better luck using a different tool that installs or uses WinPCAP capture driver.

Recently my laptop has been doing pretty bad on the performance side regarding the normal usage. Like for example, I would be browsing the internet and suddenly (randomly) google chrome is not responding for like 5-15 seconds (sometimes it crashes). I've set my performance on High, and I guess it could be the problem; after being on high performance for few weeks, the instability started kicking in.

Even browsing directories on windows, or browsing the windows option, it lags a lot.
My network is not good too! while playing games I lose huge amount of packets.

I want to start diagnosing to know what is wrong for real, both for hard drive and network, but i don't know with what tool and where can I start.

I'm using windows 8.1 on external hard drive (using Win2Go, it would help if anyone knows how to install windows on external hardrive as if it was internal disk)

A:Problem with overall performance [network and disk]

Before the problem occurs, press ctrl + shift + esc.
This brings up the taskmanager, via this way you can find out what is causing the issue.
When you get the performance issue, try to get to the taskmanager, click on 'disk' and make a photo or screenshot of it.

I have a severe problem where reading a large file is fine for a short while, then it stalls, and takes forever to finish. This means things like Media Center and Media Player are intolerable.

I've described all the details, including perfmon.exe graphs, in the file attached to this posting.

Anyone who can shed some light on this will have my immense thanks.

Do you have defrag set to run automatically or ran it yourself in a while? Might speed things up a bit. Which of your two drives are the files on and what us the speed of those drives?

In the Source engine video stress test I get 58 fps, regardless of settings! In 3DMark 03 i get about 4800 points when using the catalyst drivers, and about 8200 when using the omega drivers. However, the omega drivers yield no better performance in games (oddly enough).

I've tried installing a bunch of different drivers for the video card as well as the motherboard.

I've tried formatting and reinstalling windows two times (on different hard drives) and I've tested three different video cards. No change.

If it matters, AGP Write is set to OFF, and reverts to that if I try to change it to ON.

I'm at a loss.

I downloaded something from the internet a few weeks back.
Ever since I began to notice some performance problems.
Every now and then I experience lagging.
It got worse every day.
Frustrated, I used Spybot: Search and Destroy to look for the problem. Turned out to be 111 mal-ware problems.

But the problem isn't fixed and now it's difficult for me to even type on that computer (I used a different one for this thread).

Any suggestions on boosting CPU performance? CPU usage seems to spike viciously on even the smallest of tasks (or so it seemed for my computer until that day I downloaded the music). It's as if some mal-ware attacked my hardware

A:CPU performance problem- could it be rogue anto-spyware?

It also seems that some anti-spyware I installed additionally were detected by my Spybot: Search and Destroy were detected as spyware themselves. Could it be rogue anti-spyware?
(they were Stopsign and NoAdware. Which stinks because I just dealt with WinReanimator being on my computer.)

That sounds about right to me. A GT540 isn't the most powerful mobile GPU around.

I have been having a problem with Windows Live whereby an error occurs, 'Windows Live

Communication Platform has encountered a problem and needs to close.'

I tried many methods to solve this but have resorted for the time being in contacting

Microsoft Live's help service.

However, now my computer is suffering from various problems, slow performance, random

freezes/crashes (often) and I have received the blue screen of death twice now with the

message;

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Upon rebooting system, a 'serious error recovery' message was present that read;

BCCode : 1000000a BCP1 : 00000000 BCP2 : 0000001C BCP3 : 00000000
BCP4 : 80538102 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 3_0 Product : 256_1

I have run Malware Byte's virus checker and have encountered no problems on this front.

any help would be appreciated. I run Windows XP, and haven't had any of these problems until this Windows Live error occured.

A:intel t7500 dual core processor performance/usage problem

first of welcome to the forum.

I suspect a rogue program, but as youve updated drivers youve already covered what you can do. it could be a known compatibility issue with your hardware and a specific driver, but i cannot comment for sure as theres alot of hardware combinations.

however, heres the bad news, i recently had a laptop to repair that had the exact same problem, and i couldnt fix it for the life of me, no matter what i tried, the problem even occurred in safe mode (try this if you haven't already) and i eventually after much shouting and swearing, put the problem down to a dying CPU.

Well, yet another small doubt has occured to me. Quick and simple, my system (Windows Vista Home Premium) has been sufficient and satisfactory until now with it's 1014MB of RAM, however, seemingly, like with every other computer I've used, they always just get slower over time (or perhaps the excitement wears off) and I was wondering just how much of an improvement it would really be to have 1.5GB RAM or even 2GB RAM.

Considering HP sent me this beauty with two 512MB RAM, of course, now I wonder why they did that. Hahah.

I just now installed an Intel GB SSD Measuring the performance got strange results First it did not at all perform close to my expectations and Intels promises Above is the HD Tune benchmark but Crystal Disk Mark showed similar performance The next day I turned on the machine and using AS SSD I suddenly measured low 520 then SSD, performance, high Intel performance, again...? low roughly double the performance And just to Intel 520 SSD, low performance, high performance, then low again...? be sure I also benchmarked with HD Tune I ran AS SSD several times and got approximately the same results but I also got an error message on the Acc Time measurement saying that quot Could not open device PHYSICALDRIVE quot Does anyone know what that is about I read somewhere on the web that it could have something to do with my RAM drive Happy with this I installed the permanently in the computer But I decided to run a final measurement before going to bed And suddenly now again I got the low performance This is measured just hours later than the one above I haven't Intel 520 SSD, low performance, high performance, then low again...? the faintest clue what's going on Could it be broken Any ideas

A:Intel 520 SSD, low performance, high performance, then low again...?

The alignment looks OK if I read that picture correctly.

Intel's don't necessarily have the highest specs, but most of the specs don't mean much for most users.

If you had not benchmarked it, would you still be disappointed? Does it feel snappy, boot fast, open apps quickly, run virus scans quickly, etc?

I don't know if RAM disk might affect it.

In Reliability and Performance Monitor, Click on Performance Monitor ont he left pane, then right click it and "New" > "Data Collector Set". Run through the Wizard, here you can give a name and set the user to run as and enter the password. You will hen see it under "Data Colector Sets" ion the left pane, you can right click go to properties to see the other settings.

A:Bad performance. Gaming performance rated at 2. Help please!

Hi and welcome to TSG.

The first thing I notice is that your Windows installation is almost 2 years out of date, you don't have SP1 installed which was released in January 2011, so subsequently are probably missing numerous updates, patches and fixes for Windows itself.

Have you cleaned out the vents and heatsinks? Dust build up will increase heat which will in turn reduce performance.

Hi, I played the cod4 demo on my laptop with the following settings:

640x480
Textures - Normal
Texture Filtering - Trilinear
Anisotropic filtering - Full
Model Detail - Normal
Ragdoll - On
Rest - Lowest settings

I can get a good 30+fps and in close quarters I get 70+.

Can I run the full game (sp and mp) with the same settings and get the same fps? I'm particularly worried about maps with lots of grass (overgrown, epic sniper level in sp) as I heard it kills the frame rate.

Also just wondering, how come I can't set model detail to high? Do I need SM3.0 for that?

My laptop:

Intel Pentium 4 630 3GHz
2GB DDR2-400
ATI Mobility Radeon X600 128MB with Hypermemory
Windows XP SP3

I just really wanted know if there is anyone with a 7900 varient single or in SLI that can post their performance test results from F.E.A.R at max settings with the highest resolution possible.

I just really want to see how much my other componants are bottlenecking my 8800GTX. And if there is much of a differnce between a 7900 series card/s and the performance I am getting.

Please list what type of CPU and such you are using also

The attached pics shows my performance at 1680x1050 with everything else maxed out.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:F.E.A.R Performance ?

That's pretty good Jim!
If I wasnt on my Laptop I would load up F.E.A.R and show you my test results

In regards to getting the best performance from ram, would it be better to install 2 pieces of 512MB DDR 3200 or a single stick 1GB DDR 3200? Why?

Thanks in advance,
Timone
 

A:Ram Performance

Generally two smaller sticks are better for performance then one large one. The biggest reason, and only if your motherboard supports it, is something called Dual Channel. With Dual Channel two identical sticks are treated as a single 128 bit path instead of a 64 bit path. Another reason is latencies, usually with larger capacity modules the latency increases. So for example you may get a 256MB stick with CL2 and a 1GB stick with CL3, with 3 being longer then 2.

 We do load testing with Visual Studio Ultimate, and often the NIC can't handle the traffic. Is we order a couple new desktops, are there some kind of high-performance NIC we can add that's better able to handle that kind of unusual scenario where one machine is emulating multiple users and machines?

A:NIC performance

I can only assume that you would need PCIe x1 NICs.

Hi,

On my rig(should be listed) I get around 35fps on BC2. this seems low for my rig. I think it is a cpu problem. Another issue is on the level where techspot benchmarked MW2 I get 20fps lower than what they got on a res of 1280x1024 opposed to their 1680x1050. In l4d and l4d2 when a horde comes on I drop from around 120fps to 40fps. I think all this is a cpu/ram problem as they are sort of low end compared to my mid range gpu. Another reason I think this is in ANY GAME when I add x16Q antialiasing I get 0fps drop. No drop at all. Is there something I could do to improve this? Would overclocking my cpu help?
 

A:Low performance on BC2

The E7500 should not be really bottlenecking the GPU. However, you could definitely OC it and check if you get a performance boost.

I know that this might be a sensitive post, but please bear with me. I have utorrent installed, to receive large files from family that i have scattered all over the country. I have noticed that when i have utorrent open and running, everything else on my computer will stop or freeze up. I have got used to it by now, just wondering if there was any explanation for this. Malware...virus and addware scans came up with noting, and none of the files i dl would harm my computer (even after the Christmas dinner conversation we had)Any thoughts???

A:Odd performance

FWIW: There is a ton of info available on the Web regarding torrents and malware...all you have to do is use Google.

You may want to read Are Torrents Safe Info - http://www.infocarnivore.com/tag/are-torrents-safe/ .

If you are trying to address possible system issues that have nothing to do with malware, but the manner in which your torrent program works...I suggest that you try the support forum or...again...just use Google to search for "utorrent issues".

Hallo there,My hp laptop has i5 cpu and it was running with 60% 5 mins after opening it cause of heat and backround programms. i watched some videos about it and it says to 'set affinity' of some high process programms to run with 1 or 2 or 3 cores. After testing this to my laptop my cpu performance went to 40% and lower indeed, so it worked. Would this harm my laptop in the future?

Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

I have a GTX 780 ti and from most of the things I hear "there's nothing out there such high end cards cannot run".
Sadly not true for me, I bought a EVGA gtx 780 ti superclocked and I've been playing many games.
Skyrim: Very High textures with an ENB and ugridstoload is set to 7, I constantly get 0.2 second freezes when I look around a lot, running from area to area begins to lag a bit because cells are being loaded.
Assassin's creed IV: I can't even play on medium settings unless I turn off v-sync and set to adaptive in nvidia control panel.
BF4: Ultra settings, 140% resolution scale, 70+ fps.
Total War rome II: very-high/ultra settings, drops to like 30fps when I look at armies.

Am I doing something wrong here?
Also did I just screw myself over when the 800 series is about to come out?

A:Is this the best gpu performance?

Honestly, Windows is nice. Things work well. Sometimes (it doesn't happen to me - again, stressing being honest that's all) things are not so good and it's something you will have an epiphany about down the road.

All I'm saying is that it isn't easy if at times to get a system perfect. You gotta know everything about everything to make it happen. Lesser mortals can often achieve success too.

That's my friendly message of the day. Meant in kindness.

No, I do not follow any religion. lol (Comedy is not my best face.)

Hello guys.
I have questions.
Im looking for a full-performance settings for my PC. I'll use for game development (w/ VS and MonoGame) and Gaming. So after a clean install...
Specs: Win 10 x64, GPU 750M i7


? Should I remove built-in features in windows 10?
? Is K-Lite Codecs realy necessary?
? What services can I disable that wont affect myself? (I won't use Xbox win10 platform)
? As a good computer user, I know what kind of risks I have. Is Windows Defender OK or I need AV and a Malware tool?
? MSConfig settings will help?
? Can I disable my Intel Graphics driver to set my GPU as default for my monitor or is there another way to do it? (I don't care about power usage).
? Is there a performance post with all information needed to perform a clean install and setup a new OS for the best settings performance ?
Thanks

I remove all, but NET Frameworks, I also disable IPv6 and delete all network protocols.

No, if you are using something like MPC-HC or VideoLAN and do not edit videos and such.

That is a hard one, there is no universal advice for all, it depends, what windows features or various software you are using, eg I disable PrintSpooler, because I do not have a printer and so on.

You can start researching here: Black Viper Black Viper, but basically you will find out by trial and error.
You can also look at my config for sugestions about services and other stuff: [Batch] Windows 10 Tweaks.

It is OK, that means average, you could try something like 360 Total Security Essential
WD sometimes causes high CPU/RAM/HDD usage for no apparent reason, not scanning.

There are better tools like Autoruns or CCleaner's startup manager.
